Trickle feeding a Fanuc Amadan-04P-C, can it be done?

Recent forum posts - Mon, 05/07/2018 - 15:19
I'll start by saying that I'm a complete newbie when it comes to this, but I'm considered the engineering guy that can make things happen, so I've been blessed/cursed with this challenge.

We have a Amada punch that currently uses a Fanuc Amadan-04P-C controller, which is tied to a PC over RS-232. Currently, we are sending programs (macros is how I understood it) through this PC to the Amada, and then the magic happens. We are now wanting to expand our programs, and one challenge we are having is that we are running out of memory on this controller. So one thought that came to mind from my other RS-232 experiences is, could we trickle/drip down data to this controller instead of uploading a complete program in one go? What I'm ultimately trying to get to is, if we can avoid replacing the controller and instead with the help of a PC upload segments of G code (I think this is what it is) over RS-232, then we solve our memory problem and just keep trickle/drip feeding data in to this thing.

Is the idea crazy or impossible?

Hi machining friends vectrax ws 20 mill fanuc om control I have a 910 Low parity alarm on power up. Sat over the week end we run this mill almost daily.
Does anyone have a parameter list for these machine ?? Looking like I am going to need them from what I can read from other posts addressing this alarm code

WIRE MACHINE - Cutting speed went down drastically

Recent forum posts - Mon, 05/07/2018 - 04:44

I have Fanuc wire machine (Tape cut - model 1). It is the old one, but still in a good shape :)

English is not my native language, and I am not a person with a technical background I hope you will not have a bad understanding.

In the last period, cutting speed went down more than 2x. I am not able to figure out what is the problem. I have a feeling when a machine is in the process of cutting that wire is sticking to the piece.

First I was thinking the water is the problem but after I changed the complete system problem repeats.

Machine works well, I always have correct measurements after work is complete, but work is very slow.

Does anyone have an idea what could be wrong? What should I check?

In the attachment, I have one image. Can someone answer the questions below once he takes a look at the image?

What is correct name of these two switches, and where I can order them (e-commerce site would be the best option)?

Could they cause the problem why machining is slow?

Can I take them out and clean?

How to identify die casting vs CNC?

Recent forum posts - Wed, 05/02/2018 - 07:59
Hello! How do you know if a product was made using CNC machining or die casting? For example, a phone back cover. The Google Pixel 2 has an aluminum chassis. How can I tell if that was made using CNC or die casting? Any input would be appreciated!

HAAS tool setter arm is loose

Recent forum posts - Tue, 05/01/2018 - 11:29
I not sure why but the arm on my 1999 SL20 lathe has suddenly become loose. that is to say there is a lot of wobble at the pivot where the arm swings down into place. I am hoping to get an idea of what I am getting into before I start tearing it apart. Has anyone had experience with this or know what may need to be done? With it the way it is now my lathe man can be off by over .200" which makes it less than worthless. so he is doing it the old fashioned way with a piece of paper and touching off then taking a light cut to verify. Slow but still efective

first CNC router, where should my zero position be?

Recent forum posts - Mon, 04/30/2018 - 04:32
I have homing switches and I'm unsure if my zero should be right after they are done doing there homing or if the zero is supposed to be the center of my build volume?
